Zero hour receives phone call from panicky Network Rail supervisor. Operator in BT Mumbai replies with 'have you powered off your router?' Eventually call is passed back to the UK.
Zero hour plus one 'What's your account number again and address? Sorry, by the trackside with smoke emerging from a hole isn't on our database''
Day two - 'you've come through to global services, you need residential, putting you through. Sorry, we are experiencing a high volume of calls. Please hold. Please enter the number of the line you are calling about. Sorry we don't recognise that number goodbye'
Day three - 'why don't you ring the local exchange direct - none of the engineers have jobs today as the back end system is **** and never allocates anything'
Day four engineer on site - 'I've run out of crimps. Need to order some. Bye'
Day five - 'don't suppose you know where these cables run to? I haven't brought any documentation with me'
Day six - 'local engineer who ran the cables in the first place finds out and repairs them all. The end.
